2019 Report to the Community

Grateful For you

Dear Market Supporter,

Happy Lunar Year of the Pig! It’s been a year full of collaboration, good fortune and prosperity here at the Pike Place Market Foundation. Thanks to you and your incredible generosity, we invested $1.2 million into the Market and downtown community. This includes the largest grants ever made to our Legacy Partners, while also investing in our Community Impact Fund.

Your donation is helping to nurture a thriving Market and community so that all of us can live our best life possible. By supporting the health and stability of low-income seniors, families, farmers and vendors who call the Market community home, you are a vital part of keeping this community alive and well.

Despite the many success stories found in the Pike Place Market, we, as a city, are facing some of the biggest social growth challenges of our time.

We are seeing first-hand the most pressing needs of our community through The Market Commons, our resource center where anyone can go for help. Research confirms the needs we witness every day in the Market:

  •  30% of our downtown residents report they are running out of food each month.
  •  Actual and perceived barriers to health care prevent many of our most vulnerable neighbors from accessing the care they truly need.
  •  Service and retail workers too often live paycheck to paycheck and below the poverty line.

To address these needs, we are committed to expanding our reach and effectiveness in four areas:

  1.  Food Security: We are increasing our shopping programs by 20% to help 1,000 more low-income shoppers access fresh produce in the Market.
  2.  Economic Stability: We are expanding our Community Safety Net by 32% to be prepared to respond to more than 100 requests for emergency assistance.
  3.  Health Care System: We are increasing the capacity of our resource center,The Market Commons, by 16% to 15,000 interactions to reduce barriers to vital care for our community members.
  4.  Neighborhood & Physical Environment: We are supporting the renovation of the playground at Pike Market Child Care & Preschool to improve conditions and encourage play, discovery, and learning for infants through preschoolers. We are also investing in the improvement of the layout and distribution model of the Pike Market Food Bank to be more like a grocery store shopping experience to serve more people in an environment that promotes dignity and choice.

Your donation is helping us reach these goals and directly improving the lives of more than 11,000 of our neighbors and reaches all of us by strengthening the fabric of our community. We encourage you to contact us to learn more and see the impact of your gift at work in the Market.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to what makes Pike Place Market one of the greatest places in the world.


Our Neighborhood Model for a Healthy Community

As determined by the Center for Disease Control, our neighborhood model focuses on the priorities for a healthy community. Hover your mouse over each determinant to see our impact on each aspect of our community.  

<a id=”model”></a>

Our vision is to keep low-income residents and Market workers stable by providing financial assistance and wraparound support during times of personal crisis. Our Community Safety Net is available to provide immediate relief to anyone who lives, works or accesses services in Pike Place Market. The resource desk at The Market Commons provides community support and resource referrals with a goal of achieving long-term economic stability.

Our vision is to support the health of our low-income neighbors by providing increased access to the abundance of healthy food in Pike Place Market. Through our Food Access Program, we administer a variety of reduced price shopping programs, to encourage low-income and working-poor neighbors to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables from Market farmers and produce vendors. Thousands of our neighbors also rely on weekly shopping trips to the Pike Market Food Bank and free hot meals at the Pike Market Senior Center to meet their daily nutritional needs.

Our vision is to ensure all working families in the Market community have the opportunity to maintain stable employment, while receiving the high-quality, affordable early childhood education. We invest in the Pike Market Child Care and Preschool, the only preschool in Seattle that operates on a sliding-scale tuition payment plan so that all families, regardless of income, can receive the best possible care and education for their young children.

Our vision is to reduce health inequalities in and around Pike Place Market by increasing social connections, reducing barriers to health care and improving access, education and advocacy for all members of our community. We partner with Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market where patients collaborate with a team of medical, dental, mental health and substance abuse professionals to develop personal health improvement plans. No one is ever turned away due to a lack of insurance, income or immigration status.

We inspire a sense of connection for all members of the Market community. We help reduce isolation by welcoming everyone to The Market Commons, a low-barrier neighborhood center in the heart of Pike Place Market where residents, workers and neighbors can stop by for vital resources, social activities or even just to say “Hello!”. Members of the Senior Center participate in activities like dancing and watching films, all while connecting with fellow members, while Heritage House is an assisted living facility for the Market’s low-income senior residents to age in-place.

Our vision is to provide affordable housing and healthy spaces and ensure that our neighborhood and built environment is safe, accessible and activated for everyone. Throughout our 37-year history, the Market Foundation has invested more than $15 million in private funds and secured more than $75 million in public funds to support the development and refurbishment of 600+ units of low-income housing, an accessible senior center, expanded preschool, medical clinic, food bank and most-recently a neighborhood center and community garden.

This proven model was developed because in order to be truly healthy, a person needs more than the care they receive from a doctor.

Together through our programs and partners, we were able to invest $1.2 million into the Market community!

Our Legacy partners

Legacy Partners are our long-standing partners in the Market community, often referred to as the “Five Families”. Since the early 1980s, the Market Foundation has dedicated consistent, unrestricted funding to allow our Market partners to sustain operations year-after-year and improve services in the Market community. We are not only a major funder of these programs, but we also collaborate to improve services and identify critical connections to improve the impact of the community as a whole.

Pike Market Food Bank

Pike Market Food Bank continued to expand their grocery delivery program ensure that homebound seniors had access to the groceries they needed. 

Pike Market Childcare & Preschool

The Preschool in the Market continued to operate admidst COVID shutdowns, keeping families safe while also ensuring staff remained on payroll.

Neighborcare Health at Pike Place Market

The Medical Clinic at the Market continued telehealth visits for patients and COVID-19 vaccination sites in downtown to reach vulnerable communities.

Pike Market Senior Center

Pike Market Senior Center continued to provide case management support to seniors, especially those experiencing homelessness in downtown. The Senior Center also continued their expanded meal service to include a takeaway meal for dinner.

Heritage House at the Market

The Assisted Living Facility for Seniors in the Market kept all staff and residents COVID-FREE in 2021.


Our special projects fund to meet the emerging service and capital needs in the Market community. 

Food Access Program

Our Food Access Program brought weekly deliveries of meals and groceries to senior residents in isolation and helped Market workers afford fruits and vegetables at Market produce stands. 

The Market Commons

The Market Commons resource staff reached senior residents by phone and video calls to stay connected during periods of isolation. Market community members also relied on resource staff to help navigate public benefits while facing cost of living increases and other challenges. 

Community Safety Net

The Market Community Safety Net was available to help Market workers pay rent and other bills when income and other resources became scarce.

Small Business Recovery Fund

Our Small Business Fund provided unrestricted grants to Market merchants and peer-to-peer business consulting to help them not only survive the fallout of the pandemic, but invest beyond it.


Rachel's Reserve

Our emergency grant funds helped cover the cost of COVID-19 testing and vaccines for the Market community, as well as helped the Preschool continue operations after forced closures due to COVID cases.


Market Community Spotlight: Meet Mike

We know it takes all of us working together to create transformational change in our communities. Meet Mike – when he first came into The Market Commons, he was shy, quiet and reserved, which is something we see often in our clients struggling with isolation. See how Mike’s life changed when he found his community at Pike Place Market and the open doors of The Market Commons.

The Generous Spirit of MoxiWorks

It takes a village of social services at Pike Place Market to ensure that our neighbors are happy and healthy. That means it takes the generous spirit of active donors to bolster and uplift our mission to nurture this thriving Market community. That’s why we’re so appreciative of MoxiWorks – since 2013, the company has donated over $74,000 to the Pike Place Market Foundation. What makes this donation so meaningful is that the money is raised by employees through the Moxi Fund, in which the Moxi community comes together and contributes funds either directly or through fundraising.

Leading by example, CEO of MoxiWorks York Baur, matches funds and enthusiasm.  “The Moxi Fund is not only about helping housing-related causes, it’s about making the community with which we live and work a better place. Because we’re located a short walk from the Pike Place Market, the Market Foundation seemed the perfect place to tie these aspects together,” says York.

As a special surprise, the MoxiWorks team visited the Market this past Spring to deliver their biggest check yet: a donation of $25,000! We were astounded by this generous donation, especially with the many people and social service agencies that this donation will help.

Their involvement doesn’t just end with dollars – employees from MoxiWorks volunteer with the Pike Market Food Bank as part of their company-wide Community Service Day. MoxiWorks also actively participates in our annual holiday drive, The Giving Tree, adopting 20 families every year to give holiday gifts and treats.

For MoxiWorks, it’s about keeping their strong tradition of supporting families in the downtown community. As York puts it, “We’re honored to be a small part of their big mission.”

Thank you MoxiWorks for your continued support of the Market Foundation!

Warren Stickney is on a Man on a Mission

“My mantra is to enable people and show them the possibilities,” said Warren Stickney, Founder and CEO of Stickney Research, a financial planning business, and long-time board member of the Pike Place Market Foundation since 2007.

Warren is dedicated to these values both at work and with his volunteer leadership with the Market Foundation.

“Essentially the mission of my business is enabling wealthy people to plan their assets in such a way that they are able to give away a significant portion of their income and get involved in charity,” he said.

Warren and his team are proud of the work that they’ve done to help influence some major philanthropists in the region to make giving part of their lifelong goals. Warren helps to setup about 10 new charitable trusts per year and he’s always helping to guide some of these funds to the Pike Place Market Foundation.

“What I’m very passionate about in my work with the Market community is providing an onramp to give people a lift up ,” said Warren. “I think what the Market Foundation offers is resources to help people improve their self-esteem and show them what possibilities exist to break the cycle of poverty.”

He introduces his clients to the work of the Market community via Sunset Supper, our biggest fundraiser of the year and THE Party of the Summer in Seattle.

“I’m up to about 25 guests at the event and I invite my clients and encourage them to bring friends too,” said Warren. “It’s a fabulous way to evangelize the work of the Market Foundation – it’s my tradition going on 13 years now.” 

Partner businesses are also taking note of Warren’s commitment to the community. This year Warren was an honoree of AssetMark’s Community Inspiration Award, which came with a $10,000 gift to Pike Place Market Foundation. 

Like many Market aficionados, he also loves the Market for the quality of the vendors, the fresh food, fish and flowers. “I always stop by the Market to get fresh flowers for my home and office,” said Warren. “The ability to interface with the growers and get it direct is a pretty unique and special thing.”

It’s people like Warren who nurture this thriving Market community through both action and investment, and he’s a testament for how love for Pike Place Market can turn into integral support for the Market Community. We are so grateful for Warren Stickney!

Mr. Pink Performs with Purpose

Only beneath the cobblestones of Pike Place Market will you find obscure, dark cabaret with roots in punk and opera. Meet Chris Snell (aka Mr. Pink), the honorary Mayor of Pike Place Market and the artistic genius behind the red velvet curtain of at the Can Can Productions. Yet, more than a great show, he performs with purpose in the Market community.

Read More

After being nominated the honorary Mayor of Pike Place Market in 2017 by fellow Market merchants, he’s taken his new role to heart.

“The Market is an amazing and brilliant community of humans,” said Mr. Pink. “The work ethic, diversity – both economic and culturally – are truly remarkable.”

He dedicates his leadership and performance skills as Emcee of major Market events such as the Grand Opening Ceremonies of the MarketFront expansion in 2017 and Master of Ceremonies for the Pig Races at PIG! Day Out this year. He’s also finding ways to give back to support the services for low-income residents, workers and neighbors who rely on the Market community for support. He does this by encouraging every attendee of his show to donate to support the Market Foundation.

“I love the depth and breadth of what the Market Foundation does for this community,” said Mr Pink. “It doesn’t matter where you are on the spectrum of humanity, this community is here for you.

“I believe in putting my money where your intentions are. With all of the money in this town, the Market is the one thing that keeps our city grounded.”

As for Mr. Pink and his performances on stage, they’re anything but grounded, yet his heart and dedication to this community are rooted deep beneath the cobblestones.
